Not enough Points of Interest

Erich Sanchez, Amazon
16 May 2007
  • Summary: My first GPS was a Garmin V that I bought 5 years ago. This was my comparison point. I bought the TomTom instead of Garmin C340 because it has a bigger screen and support different audio languages, but I decided to return the equipment after a week of use and claimed a refund. My old Garmin has a lot more information than this TomTom. I verified this GPS has the last US map and download an update of shopping centers but was not enough.

A few nice points, but very dangerous due to bad maps.

  • Summary: I bought this unit for my father. He doesn't speak English, and TomTom is the only unit that can give directions in the language he needs. The unit speaks 36 languages. Another nice point about TomTom is the large 4-inch screen, which is important to an older person. Similar-sized Garmin (Nuvi 660) is a lot more expensive. But that's where the nice points end, and the problems begin. First, the unit can only be mounted on the windshield.

Mixed views on TomTom 510

J. Gordon, Amazon
14 August 2006
  • Summary: I have had my TomTom 510 for nearly two weeks now and have covered about 1000 miles in that time. Initially the mount was very secure and the unit didn't come unstuck from the windscreen. It didn't stop charging due to a loose connection either. After about 5 trips I did notice the connection becoming more loose. It now only takes a little knock to stop it charging.

good one, little faults that nag

Robin Bhowmik "digital user", Amazon

  • Summary: Unlike the other reviewers, I did not have a problem with charging unit on the windscreen mount but did have the problem with the home cradle. I returned the first unit when it refused to pick up GPS signals anywhere in the country! The second unit has been used for a week and so far no problems. I would overall reccomend this product as it works much better than the Navman 530 I tried earlier.

Poor Manufacturing Inspection

Mr. D. N. Gosling, Amazon
24 July 2006
  • Summary: My new TomTom 510 arrived from Amazon last week. At once delighted with the unit - reception, response, screen clarity and ease of use. However this 510 cannot have been function tested before despatch from TomTom because at once it failed to charge in the car dock. A fine product spoiled by slack post-manufacturing inspection and test.

Don't buy it until they fix the fault!

Bald eagle, Amazon

  • Summary: Screen mount apart, this is a good Sat Nav system. However as other reviewers have detailed, the screen mount has an inherent design fault that means that the power supply disconnects repeatedly. I contacted Tom Tom direct, and they offered to collect and repair the unit (which was less than a week old)but would give no commitment that the fault would not occur again (in fact they refused to enter into a dialogue about it), so I returned it for a refund to Amazon (good...

User Review

jesuiszabou, Ciao
12 December 2008
  • Summary: Excellent produit. Seul point noir, la très mauvaise qualité de la ventouse. Non, il ne se décolle pas du pare-brise, pire encore : La petite pièce de plastique qui relie la ventouse à son support, casse très facilement lors du verrouillage. L' achat d'un nouveau support ne règle que provisoirement le problème puisque à terme il cassera aussi. J'ai donc acheté une fixation à ventouse quelconque et j'ai bidouille le système. Maintenant tout est OK à peu de frais.

Nützlich aber mit sehr alten Karten

Jochen Karrer "jnkarrer", Amazon
4 July 2007
  • Summary: Das Go 510 führt zuverlässig zum richtigen Ort. Der Akku hält ca. 5-6 Stunden. Man kann also auch mit einem Auto ohne Steckdose verreisen. Das Kartenmaterial ist allerdings eigenartig. An manchen Orten ist es unter zwei Jahre alt an anderen 5-11 Jahre. Die Ansagen sind häufig nicht wirklich gut. Man muss daher leider auf das Display schauen.

Bueno, pero caro.

dferrmar, Ciao

  • Summary: Ventajas: Es muy bueno indicando. Una vez que toma covertura de los satélites suele indicar bastante bien aunque si te paras a veces se puede volver un poco loco intentando averiguar si has cambiado de dirección. La actualización los mapas no está mal e indicar, indica bastante bien, luego es casi imposible perderse, aunque el mapa no esté actualizado. Viene con una lapa para el coche y cargador de mechero de coche, lo cual también es de esperar.
  • Pros: Buena calidad
  • Cons: Precio, actualización de mapas, reseteos sin sentido
